Relationship to the JES2 /*OUTPUT statement

z/OS MVS JCL Reference

JES2 ignores a JES2 /*OUTPUT statement when either of the following appears in the same job or step:
  • A default OUTPUT JCL statement implicitly referenced by the sysout DD statement.
  • An OUTPUT JCL statement explicitly referenced by the OUTPUT parameter of the sysout DD statement.

In this case, JES2 uses the third positional subparameter of the DD SYSOUT parameter as a form name, and not as a reference to a JES2 /*OUTPUT statement.
